A thousand sunsets, a thousand memories, a thousand heartbeats
Santorini feels like no other place on Earth. A mythical, ancient island that endured one of the largest volcanic eruptions in history. Poets have written about it and artists attempt to capture its beauty. On Santorini, everything is brighter. Spectacular landscapes with blue domed chapels and whitewashed houses perched on black volcanic cliffs, all set against the backdrop of the beautiful shimmering Aegean sea. However Santorini’s true essence is far below the surface and the real beauty lies in its people and rich culture.
"The sea is lonely, the sea is dreary,
The sea is restless and uneasy;
Thou seekest quiet, thou art weary."
"Voices sweet, from far and near,
Ever singing low and clear,
Ever singing longingly."
"As if they fain would seek the shore,
To be at rest from the ceaseless roar,
To be at rest forevermore."
- The Sirens by James Russell Lowell
